Are you fed up with coming home from a hard day at work just to find your favorite slippers have been torn to shreds by chewing? Thank goodness you found us because you are in the right place now.

In this article I will go over why your dog loves to chew and how you can stop dog chewing once and for all. It’s about time right? At least for the sake of your shoes and furniture.

First you need to come to grips with the fact that all have a natural tendency to chew on things. At least you can rest assured in knowing that your dog isn’t trying to destroy your things or get back at you for not taking him on that walk yesterday.

It is important to stop dog chewing early as it can turn into quite a dangerous hobby for your furry friend. Things such as electrical wires can electrocute him right in the mouth if he is not careful.

Thankfully, we can narrow down your dog’s chewing habit to a few possible causes. One reason might be because he is bored out of his mind and chewing is the only thing that gives him some entertainment. If this is the case, give him some toys that are safe to chew on.

Separation anxiety is another factor to consider. If you leave him home all day while you are gone or at work, at least turn on the radio or television to give him some company throughout the day.

Your dog would probably rather watch Animal Planet than soap operas. However, anything is better than nothing.

When your dog is still a he will go through a teething stage. This is usually where the dog chewing habit develops so make sure to direct your dog to safe chew toys and away from everything else. The sooner you teach him, the better.

Fear can also be a contributing factor. chew on things when they are afraid. Try to figure out if there is anything scaring or stressing your dog out during the day when you are gone.

Make sure to make your home as comforting as possible for your dog and keep anything that may be scaring your dog away.

Again, turning on the television can help at this point as well. No matter what, keep in mind that he is not chewing to make you angry or to ruin your things.

You can stop dog chewing with a lot of , patience some a bit of training.
